MONUMENTS AND MEMORIALS
Periphery will engage sensitively with the community and stakeholders in the development of monuments and memorials that have meaning, gravity and longevity
This project memorialises those fishermen who have lost their lives while doing their work. It was rewarding to see the project opened in 2013 with much emotion.
The Tasmanian Commercial Fishermen Memorial is an installation on the concrete upstand at the edge of the comnmercial fishermen’s wharf to memorialise those fishermen who have lost their lives while doing their work. It lists approximately 80 names, incorporates a quote from Psalm 107 “They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters.” and a plaque stating: “This memorial is dedicated to Tasmanian commercial fishermen who have lost their lives in fishing activities.”
